Yes…I know…another Springsteen reference. What can I say? We both grew up in Freehold, NJ and his music just speaks to me.
And for those who don’t understand how the blog title has anything to do with Springsteen, that is just a reminder that I am old and you are not.
Anyway…back to the point at hand.
I had the pleasure of receiving a wonderful care package from the good folks at Harvester Brewing, with a bottle of each of their fine brews. There was an IPA, a Pale Ale, a Dark Ale, a Dubbel and an Experimental Ale.
And all I can say is…OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They have raised the stakes in the gluten-free beer wars.
New Grist…you were the first truly drinkable gluten-free beer I ever had and you will always hold a special place in my heart. You never...
We’ve all heard the doctor horror stories (and if you haven’t, read them here…disturbing to say the least).
We all know that celiac disease continues to be misdiagnosed and that the average time to get accurately diagnosed is 6-10 years.
We all know that because there is no “cure” for celiac disease and no drugs to treat it, and therefore no financial incentive for the medical community, it often gets overlooked.
What you may not know is that so many people, while trying to find a reason for their ailments, are diagnosed as having psychological issues. Imagine that? A doctor saying you need psychological help simply because he/she can’t find a physical reason for all your symptoms.
I hear it over and over again and it frustrates me to my core.
I want share a story that a fellow celiac sent to me. Not only is she a celiac,...
Want to help raise celiac awareness in a major way? All you need to do is fill out a simple form. Really…it’s that easy.
Here’s the deal.
Dominick Cura is a 14-year-old celiac on a mission. He has his own blog. He’s been on the news. He has self-published a gluten-free cookbook. He is making a documentary about celiac disease to “show people Celiac isn’t the end of the world, but the beginning of a new one.”
And now, Dominick wants to get on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to help raise awareness about celiac disease.
How cool is that? When I was 14, my biggest goal was not to drool on myself when talking to girls. I’d say Dominick’s aspirations are a bit higher than mine were.
First…let’s get to know Dominick a bit.
Pretty cool kid, right?
Well this cool kid is doing everything he can to get...
First off, I am about a month behind in my emails. So for all of you who have written to me asking for advice…I apologize. Celiac Awareness Month was a bit of a whirlwind and it took the wind out of my sails a bit.
But I’m back and ready to help all who need it.
Today’s Dear Gluten Dude comes from a doting Mom with celiac disease who is trying to do right by her children. They are showing some celiac signs but the blood work tested negative and she is debating whether she should order endoscopies for them. If any other parents out there have been in her shoes, please advise.
Here’s her email.
Hey Gluten Dude!
I have Celiac. I am the mother of a 3-yr old boy and an almost-one-year-old girl. We introduced my son to gluten after his first birthday. Never gave Celiac any...
